óóStudent Attendanceóóstudents

Definition of Excused Absences

DLH Regulation defines excused absences as those due to temporary illness or injury, and any other reason deemed acceptable by the Headmaster. The Headmaster has the authority to determine whether an absence is excused or unexcused.

Excused absences include:

 

  1. Temporary illness or injury.
  2. An absence which is approved by the administrator of the school.
  3. Extended absences due to physical, mental, or emotional disabilities. Documentation from the care provider is required.
  4. Emergency, serious illness or death in the family.
  5. Medical and dental appointments which cannot be scheduled outside the regular school day. Documentation from care provider is required.
  6. Extremely inclement weather.
  7. Participation in religious observances.
  8. An absence resulting from participation in a work/study program, field trip or athletic competition under the supervision of the school.

 

Absence for  Excused reasons: Parents are asked to call the school office to report that their child is sick. A student who has a fever is to remain at home until the temperature has returned to normal for 24 hours.

 Students are expected to attend classes when school is in session. Requests to be absent are to be made to the school headmaster in writing or by telephone early before the absence occurs. This procedure gives opportunity for the school to reflect to the parents the possible effects of the absence and/or together make some alternative study arrangements. Knowing class work and assignments ahead often enables the student to turn in made-up work when he/she returns. Homework not turned in by the due date will normally receive a reduced or zero-percent (0%) grade. Students whose work is marginal should be aware of the possible consequences of missing school—such as poor or non-passing grades. In most cases simply completing homework missed may not result in as high a grade since vital classroom participation is missed.

If a student's unexcused absences exceed (5) days in a semester, a recommendation for termination of enrollment may be made by the Principal to the Superintendent.

Homework policy** teachers-students

Homework provides additional learning experiences for students. These experiences can have positive effects on achievement and character development and can serve as a vital link between the school and family.

Homework should focus on:

                    Practice of skills introduced in class

                    Pre-reading of new material to be introduced in class

                    Integration of skills that are applied to a single project.

 

Purpose

Homework should have different purposes at different grades:

Kindergartners:

                    Benefit from being read to and having involvement with skills which expand their horizons but do not involve independent study.

 

Elementary (grades 1-5) school students should be given homework to:

                    Develop good study habits

                    Communicate that learning takes place at home as well as at school

                    Provide time to practice and extend learning, especially through independent and oral reading

 

Middle and high school students should be given homework to:

                    Improve achievement

                    Extend the time available for both practice and investigative learning

                    Help more mature students take charge of their own learning opportunities.

                     

 

Research Findings

Based on an analysis of research studies, there is uniform agreement among researchers that:

                    It is more positive for learning to distribute material across several smaller assignments than to concentrate on larger units of material over a short time.

                    Homework assignments for students with identified learning disabilities should be short and focused on reinforcement of skills and class lessons.

                    Monitoring of assignments for students is necessary for all and critical for those with identified learning disabilities and/or an English language deficiency.

                    Individualization of basic homework assignments for those without an approved modified program has proven not to result in substantial benefits which justify the amount of additional teacher time required.

                    Homework should involve parents' encouragement, oversight, and monitoring of study management by their student. Homework assignments should keep required parental involvement in the academic content to a minimum.

                    Homework should be evaluated soon after completion.

                     

                    Consequences depends on not doing the home work

 

1. The parents will be informed by the daily report and the parents have to sign it.

2. The school will inform the parents by the school phone.

3. If he doesn’t do his homework he will be deprived of the break time and he will do his homework or he will stay for the end of the day and the subject teacher will stay with him in the room till he finish.

4. The parents will come to meet the administration.

Roles and Responsibilities

Headmasters  are responsible to:

¬     Communicate the homework policy

¬     Monitor the homework policy

¬     Coordinate implementation as needed

Teachers are responsible to:

¬     Clearly indicate to students how the assignment is related to the topic under study.

¬     Indicate the purpose of the assignment.

¬     Define how the assignment might be best carried out.

¬     Stipulate what the student needs to do to demonstrate successful completion of the assignment; this involves communicating carefully at the beginning of the assignment the criteria which clarify the teacher's expectations.

                    Evaluate and give prompt feedback.

Parents:

¬     Should rarely be asked by the teacher to play a formal teaching role in homework

¬     Should be asked to create a home environment that facilitates student self-study

¬     With the primary grade children, may have direct involvement in listening, memorizing, etc.

¬     Should be monitoring completion of homework for students in Grades 1-8

Conclusion

¬     When teachers and parents work together to implement these recommendations, homework can be useful and generally free from a high level of frustration. These parameters can and should receive broad support from both parents and teachers. Morrison's teachers should make whatever adjustments are necessary to live within these general parameters and parents should support these efforts to make homework beneficial

óóEmergency School Closingsóóall

 

Cancellation of school activities due to weather, disease spread (H1N1) or other emergencies. This policy covers cancellation for the entire or part of a day.

 In general terms, the policy empowers to close schools or dismiss students early in the event of existing or predicted hazardous weather or other emergency The policy ensures clear communication to families and groups during a time when the weather emergency makes such communication especially important. When school is closed or dismissed early due to weather or other emergency, school activities are to be canceled. If an emergency is caused by a factor other than weather, school activities may be conducted depending on safety conditions.

 

Please note the following (for parents):

  • The decision will always be made to protect students from the potential harm of severe weather or other hazards.
  •  The school web site will indicate if school is not in session.(www.darluqman.net ) also the facebook page for  DLH

 Announcements will be made only when school is canceled or dismissed early. No announcements are made when school is following a normal schedule.

  • Communication during any emergency is critical to safety. Please do not phone the school unless absolutely necessary. Such phone calls delay operations and tie up phone lines and time needed to deal with the emergency or hazardous condition.
  • Parents should be certain that their children are properly clothed, instructed and otherwise prepared for emergencies. If you will not be at home, please have an alternate safe location arranged.
  • If parents disagree with a decision to hold school on a bad weather day because they think it is too hazardous, they are urged to keep their students at home.
